CRN has awarded 5 stars to the Schneider Electric EcoXpert™ Partner Program in their Partner Program Guide for the third consecutive year. It is always an enormous honor and representation of success for the program and our partners who are constantly delivering customer excellence. Each year that EcoXpert receives 5 stars proves the expertise of our partners. We strive to remain among the best of the best.
The past two years, I felt that the critical factors that contributed to the 5-star accreditation in both the 2017 CRN Partner Program Guide and 2018 CRN Partner Program Guide were: 1) the Schneider Electric brand and the EcoStruxure™ technology, 2) our ongoing mission to connect our partners and provide them with everything they need to thrive and, most importantly, 3) the quality of the partners in the EcoXpert partner program. I also pointed out how the program continues to evolve, boasting new successes each year. Rapid change is continuing to affect us for the better as we pursue our partner journey ahead.
The EcoXpert program mission is, “to connect expertise, ignite growth and enable success for our EcoXpert partners, because together we deliver best-in-class services and solutions to our valued customers.” We work with every partner, on every project, to live up to that mission through the power of our ever-changing EcoStruxure architecture and platform enabling our partners to be ahead in this race of change.
Keeping up with change
Change can be very difficult to keep up with, but fortunately the local and global network of technology leaders making up the EcoXpert Partner Program continue to do so. That is why it’s an even greater honor to be awarded in this year’s CRN Partner Program Guide.
Our customers demand ever-evolving products and services that can keep up with the pace of the world’s megatrends: urbanization, industrialization, and digitization. These shifts in the world are having a major impact on how we conduct business today, and even more so on how our customers will conduct business in the future. These types of trends require the kind of program that EcoXpert delivers with the help of the quality and power behind Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure technology. EcoXperts are the implementation arms of EcoStruxure and are committed to delivering unparalleled innovation and partnerships.
The CRN Partner Program Guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication. This definitive listing of technology vendors is published each year by The Channel Company.
Simply put, the awarding of 5 stars means that the EcoXpert Partner Program is among the best of the best, delivering to both our partner channel and our valued customers. Just listen to The Channel Company’s CEO, Robert Faletra, “For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”
